Does anyone know if wallflowers can be grown as "summer bedding"

I grow them as normal. Seeds in end of June.
Eventually into flowering place mid october or when summer ones have had it.
Got seeds off great one this summer. Wondered
if seeds in a box around March 1st would come good. Anyone? Live in Leeds Yorks



Hi Zorok wallflowers are perennials that are usually treated as biennials. Sowing seed next spring, whether collected from your plants or shop bought, would mean you have flowering plants in 2011.

they may well flower in the late summer as the light levels are similar to those in the spring. some of my woodier ones are flowering again. but more likely as mg says the following year.
